The protesters are being treated like cattle because they don't want to drink water that will kill them. The UN is currently investigating because they believe it's a humans rights violation. I know something horrific happened to the protesters last night.

I noticed you mentioned, ginny, that the corporation should just stop the pipeline. Then I have to ask you what is the safest way to transport the oil?
I know it's easy just to say, we'll stop using petroleum. However most people who say this don't realize just how much oil has shaped the modern world. Roughly about 50 to 60 percent of oil is uses for gasoline or kerosene. But 40 to 50 percent is used for a LOT of other things. If you feel that we should just give up using petroleum, then you're going to have to give up the very computer or cellphone you're using right now. The plastic components are made of petroleum products. The plastic components of every single household appliance you have has petroleum products. Nylon has petroleum products, thus much of the clothes we wear require oil. Dentures, tvs, antihistamines, aspirins, linoleum, shoe soles, glue, paints, dyes, garden hoses, deodorants, pillows, soaps, detergents, carpeting, catheters, syringes, toothpaste, prosthetic limbs, anesthetics, caulking, yarn, eyeglasses, radios, contact lenses, wet suits, ink, shampoo, refrigerators, and many many more things all have petroleum products. I don't mean they're powered by petroleum, they're made from petroleum. To say nothing of the machines which require lubricants made from petroleum.
I'd like to ask the Lakota people if they use any of the things I listed. The answer, as we all know, is absolutely yes. So if they have the moral courage to protest the pipeline, then they should attempt to propose a better way to transport the oil. Or if they have the moral courage to say we should not drill for oil, then they should have the moral courage to give up all the products I just listed (and the many more I didn't list). The same goes for anyone who says we should just stop using oil altogether.7

Finally Going to Get ALL of our Resources that We have coming, instead of Depending on the Saudi's. Trump will make sure of it. He will See to it, all goes Fine down this Thin Line.
The "Out of Control" EPA is Blowing this way out of Proportion. There are many of our own Pipelines throughout America that Go through Large Bodies of Water, and Anyone, hun, in Charge of this, such as Dapper Don, will Be Certain no one is "Poisoned."
The Native Americans are Afraid, as well, of this Going through Sacred Grounds. With Trump in Charge, he will Probably Reroute it. xx3
